We conduct Internship program for various branches of Engineering students like CSE, ISE, ECE and EEE Branches. We  train the students on technical concepts and soft skills. The students develop an app for an iOS device, starting from scratch. They gather the requirements, conduct feasibility analysis, create a prototype, draw Data Flow Diagrams, prepare project planning report, design the interface, write the code and test it on the device. Throughout the program, students work collaboratively and develop skills like creativity, critical thinking, logical reasoning, communication, analytical thinking and leadership.
